I have this sql statement which supposed goal is to select items based on the description field only if they do not have
the word 'Not in" or  "Discontinued" in the beginning of the description field; s in

" Not in the list..." or "Discontinued item..." and so forth

SELECT Publisher,Book,Descrip,Cost, List,pubid,RowLastUpDtByOp,RowLastUpdtDtTi from Books where pubid = '276 ' and(descrip not like 'Not%' or descrip not like 'Discontinued %') order by id

For some reason I still get those data that has 'Not in" or "Discontinued' in the resultset.
Where am I making the mistakes?

Just change your "or" to "and":

SELECT Publisher,Book,Descrip,Cost, List,pubid,RowLastUpDtByOp,RowLastUpdtDtTi
FROM Books
WHERE pubid = '276 ' AND descrip not like 'Not%' AND descrip not like 'Discontinued %'
ORDER BY id
